This sweet little coffee shop is one of our very favorite places in Asheville. Its located on tunnel road just a few short minutes from us. Its in a small stone castle looking building. At night they turn it into a fancy cocktail bar and feature some food options. Whether you want drinks, coffee, a cocktail, or dinner--this is THE place. Not be confused with the only place, just a very good one.

Delicious Pastries and breakfast options! they have a really cute outdoor patio area that feels very European. Its very close to LuLu Lemon so be aware of fit soccer moms. remember-You're in Asheville so they aren't as aggressive as the metropolitan soccer mom species but you can still be side swiped with a coach bag. And from what I've heard those suckers pack a punch.

This is your hosts favorite coffee hands down. Its a small little shop in Black Mountain. Delicious coffee. They also sell local chocolate bars so if youre looking for a small souvenir for your house sitter, this is a good option! Unless you have a garbage house. In that case keep the chocolate

we love tacos and this place is the best. You can even order ahead and pick it up in their drive thru if you're as lazy as me! Note: the chips and guac are delish. especially when you're enjoying them in the privacy of your own car where no one can judge the speed of which you consume them.

High Five coffee is pretty much a go to. If I moved away I would not come back to visit my family but I would for sure frequent this shop. Everyone who works there is far above friendship league but that won't stop me from following up on my three month pending instagram friend requests! (if you go there, put a good word in for me)

This is my favorite coffee shop in West Asheville. It used to be a different coffee shop entirely called Waking Life (that was also delicious) but the owners had to move because...well...long story. But if you want to start a riot go downtown and yell "WAKING LIFE IS THE BOMB" and you will have a mosh pit in no time. New owners, better coffee, fantastic cozy spot. Note: host not responsible for injuries or judgement.

This place is on Liberty St (shocking) on the outskirts of downtown. Its a super cool old arts and crafts house and the food is very organic and good. the cookies are some of my favorites and I know a good cookie when I eat one. You know those trendy canvas aprons with leather straps that when you walk into a place and someone is wearing them you think "oh yeah. this is gonna be good"? Yep. Thats this place. You can almost taste the overpriced server outfits in the best, quality way.

Theres "I'm full" and "I'm Mexican food full." This place is the perfect place to experience the latter. There have been times I've eaten there and then didn't eat anything for 3 years.

If you want everyone you know to be jealous of your trip and your life in general go the Book Exchange, take pictures, post them, done. Its a coffee shop that has small rooms that you find through bookshelves. Bookshelf coffee maze is a strange but accurate description. There is literally no other place like this in Asheville. They have cheese boards, pastries, coffee, wine, beer, and also more wine. This is hands down my go to spot when people visit me from out of town. My hope is they leave a little sadder because of how successful I have become. Note: They also have wine

You go to Louises, order, and find a seat anywhere you want in this big blue historic house built in 1904. My favorite thing is to order pancakes and find a seat on her gigantic wrap around porch. Its the perfect spot to start your day. Bonus: they sell Dynamite Coffee. A Local Roaster. If you are unsure if this where you want to go, google a picture.

Dobra does not sell coffee! There are three locations to this chinese inspired Tea Shop but I chose the one closest to the Airbnb. There's also one downtown and in West Asheville. Apparently there are a lot Tea drinkers after all. Just a heads up a lot of the seating in the West AVL and Downtown location require you to take off your shoes. Not the best option when you're wearing Target flats. When you arrive they will hand you a dictionary sized tea list and a bell to ring when you've chosen a tea (or randomly guessed one to order.) I like to pretend when I ring the bell I'm calling my butler, Jeeves. Note: they do not like being called Jeeves

For some reason Airbnb doesnt have a "popcorn" category for the guidebook so I put it under dessert. Honestly I could eat this popcorn for breakfast lunch and dinner. My personal favorite is "the Asheville Blend" which is caramel and cheddar cheese. This is one hundred percent the best place to bring home souvenirs. Their packaging is adorable and the product is unique and different. An entire shop dedicated to craft popcorn. What a time to be alive. Note: the entrance door is kind of tucked away in the alley, its easy to miss so keep your eyes peeled!

Ever waited 4 hours for breakfast? Well thats because you've never had a breakfast worth waiting 4 hours for! This place is famous for its breakfast--specifically the savory french toast. If I'm being honest, and i will because we're friends now, I am a HUGE fan of their dinner menu. Especially if you like shrimp and grits. Its unbelievably good. The wait can be lengthy for breakfast but probably no more than an hour. Dinner is usually slower. You can always call ahead and ask!

Post 70 is located in the "FILO" coffee shop we also recommend. They have amazing craft cocktails. I recommend the amaretto sour or apollos chariot. also they have some of the best spinach and artichoke dip around! seriously, I could eat my weight in it. Spoiler alert: I weigh more than one serving of spinach and artichoke dip
This brewery is the bomb. They specialize in Belgian beers and all outside food is welcome. Local pizzeria, Pizza Mind is right next door so thats always a good option! Fun fact: your host used to work there!

Now if you're trying to get fancy and live the dream this is my suggestion. Getting fancy isn't a requirement but nothing says you have your life together like walking on a pebble street with winged eye liner and your head held high. This place has super fancy food that I can't even pronounce. Its a bar so its a great place to start before heading off to dinner or maybe on your way back. Just drink responsibly cause no one likes to be tipsy at a place with flowers on the wall that spell out the name of where you are. It gets confusing really, really fast. So I'm told.

This place. THIS. PLACE. I don't even know how to describe it so I'll just say they have a guy who sits on a stool in the old school elevator and takes you to the bar. If that doesn't scream "Im fancy" what does? Its like being in "The Shining" without the psychic 6 year old or murder. Don't be sad, its still very fun

Pisgah! People come from all over to snag a brew from this trusty brewery. They always have a slammin food truck and sometimes you can catch live music! Theres a lot of outdoor space if you're into picnic tables. Hipsters love a good picnic table. Right down the road!

You guessed it! MORE LOCAL BREWERIES! If it seems like there's one every corner don't second guess yourself. You're right. Breweries are like Walgreens around here. This is a pretty good option if you're hopping around! We haven't gone a ton because we have three children and they have a tendency to panic when we stray to far from their fruit snack cabinets.

Handmade treasures. good for souvenirs! Nothing says "thank you for watching my cat while I was staying in the best airbnb ever" like a lamp from Africa. Actually, a lot of things say it better but lamps are nice.

This flower shop is a must stop go to if you enjoy house plants. If you don't enjoy house plants you should meet my husband. You already have more in common than we do. Note: They also have coffee now and its really sweet and cute in there, green thumb or not. You just need a caffeine thumb.

Its no secret between my friends and family that I have more plants than any given person should own. When Im sitting outside I often think to myself "hm. Needs more plants." Nothing calms my frantic spirit like a trip to Roses. Im aware that there is also a department store called Roses. Don't go there. It is not what I'm describing and would be far less exciting. Unless you're my husband. Who hates houseplants. In that case you would be very excited.

Parks & Nature
This is less of a hike, more of a walk. less than a 5 minute drive and such a peaceful place to be. You follow the river through most of the trail. If you're as much of a maniac as I am a calming walk will do your heart some good.

This park is awesome. Its tricky to find because its hidden behind a weird warehouse. It has a figure 8 loop around the lake that equals a mile. It also attaches to the Warren Wilson hiking trail so its a great place to park and start the trail! Its a great place to run. Not that I do because I get winded on my way to the mailbox.

Sightseeing
This may seem like a strange suggestion but trust me, its worth it. The grove park inn is full of history and fun facts, its essentially a museum. You don't have to be a guest to enjoy seeing their gigantic fireplaces, delicious cocktails, or even getting a massage if you're into that kind of thing! (I recommend the hot coco if the weather is favorable). Its easy to spend an afternoon seeing the views at the grove park--inside and out. NOTE: I recommend the hot coco with the weather is also not favorable.
